Property description

C-Shell is a lovely second row townhome in the Heron Cay complex which is between Island Drive or Rt. 210 and the Intra-Coastal Waterway. We are an end unit in the front row of the complex and face the ocean. The complex has plenty of open area and a pretty pool with gazebo and landscaping. We have a private beach access walkway which begins a few steps from the entrance to the complex. . Parking is off street under the unit or alongside the back stairs.

There are no public beach accesses nearby. The complex also has a private access with a dock to the intra-coastal waterway which is behind the complex. From the dock you can catch crabs and watch beautiful sunsets. We are located on North Topsail Beach, only 2.3 miles from the high rise bridge.

Our townhome has A/C and ceiling fans; broadband, wireless internet, phone, and two digital TVs. There are: DVD, Stereo radio with disc player, board games, and basic kitchen accessories including microwave, blender, toaster, can opener, and coffee maker.

First level: There are 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a laundry room. The master suite bedroom has a queen bed, custom shower, wall mounted TV, and balcony door opening onto the lower deck. It faces the ocean. The bedroom next to the master suite has a queen bed, opens onto the lower deck and faces the ocean. The third bedroom on this level has two twin beds and has poolside and Intracoastal Waterway views.
The second full bath on this level is a hall bath with tub shower.

The great room on the first level has windows on 3 sides and balcony doors on two sides. This reverse floor plan affords ocean and intra-coastal views and ample comfortable seating. The dining area and kitchen in this great room have ocean view. There is a half bath on this level. There is also a full size sleep sofa with an upgrade mattress.

There are 2 large front decks with furniture. Relax, read a book, or watch the sunrise rise the ocean. There is a back deck facing the pool, from which you can also enjoy the ambience of the area and watch beautiful sunsets over the Intra-Coastal waterway.

For your convenience, you will have access to a renter’s closet under the unit which has beach chairs, baby Q gas grill, beach umbrella, crab pot and boogie boards.
Some supplies are already in the home for your convenience. We ask that you please replace what you use before leaving. For your convenience, there is an outdoor shower and bench under the entrance stairs that you may use for rinsing off after coming from the beach or before going to the pool.

Topsail Island is about 40 minutes from the Wilmington, N.C. historic water front district and the battleship USS North Carolina. Locally, The Belle of Topsail tour boat provides rides on the Intra-Coastal waterway in season. Fishing off the piers and from the beach are popular. Water sports include: surfing, kayaking, canoeing, and jet skiing. Biking is popular on the island and bikes can be rented.

The Vanda Kay takes out fishing parties from Topsail.. The Turtle Hospital and Missiles and More Museum on the island are must see. Surf City Soundside Park is very enjoyable with picnic facilities, attractions, and outdoor movies in season. An elaborate miniature golf is available just over the swing bridge. The island is 15 to 30 minutes from Camp LeJeune and 30 minutes from Jacksonville, NC which has major retail stores, and restaurants.

There are a variety of eating places and restaurants on the island and just off the island as well as boutiques, art galleries, local groceries and shops. Some of our favorites are Daddy Macs, Batson's (family style) and Island Delight. The Topsail Trader is well known for their homemade fudge stylish jewelry, gift bags, culinary items, and boutique. There is something for all ages on Topsail.

Emergency care and pharmacy services and Food Lion are conveniently located short distances from the island over both the swing and high rise bridges. We are 2.3 miles from the high rise bridge. These bridges give access to the 26 mile long island. Topsail is one of the last unspoiled beaches on the East Coast, as reported by the Richmond Times Dispatch newspaper in Richmond, Virginia and travel magazines
